    I answered it in my first response. Being the hack that you are you ignored the answer I gave you.

    The players will lose & the fans will win so I suggest you save your first aid kit for when that realization sets in.

    While the letter did say that the NFL believes everyone should stand, Goodell has said that there has been no policy change as of yet: Roger Goodell: 'No policy change' on national anthem

    When the revenue drop gets painful enough it will be forced.

    It may even become police after the meeting(s) that are scheduled. I'm just pointing out that Goodell didn't actually tell players they have to stand.

    Maybe the players will learn, after they beaten their wife, children and etc .
    Then they'll have to testify in court for their good deed .
    They will then, put their right hand in the air, to get sworn in to testify ...

    Sounds like a good time to start kneeling .............

    coming from a troll who runs off with his tail between his legs when presented with facts he cant refute how evil our government really is,you hardly have any credibility to speak.:rofl: I cant count how many times I have waited for you to address facts that take you to school and prove you wrong only to watch you run away every single time about government corruption.:rofl:

    You should get a room together with USMB's resident troll WRONGwinger and anquity,two trolls who to this day REFUSE to own up to it that they were proven wrong by me that the Rams would never come back to LA always getting angry and changing the subject when i ask the simple question-"what was it you were saying about the rams never coming back to LA? " which they stated MANY times 3 years ago.:rofl:

    they both start crying like babies to immature to own up to it. well YOU do the same when you cant refute pesky facts how corrupt and evil our government really is so excuse me if i dont listen to your drivel that reminds me so much of anquity and wrongwinger.:lmao:

    No, you did not.

    The question being, what is the FUNCTION of a national anthem in a sports event, the best you could come up with was "an expression of national pride".

    That tells us what a national anthem *IS*. It does not tell us what function it plays in a sports event.

    Put another way, how would the ensuing game be altered if the anthem were not played?

    You can readily answer how a game would have been altered if McBungle didn't throw that interception. Or how it would have been altered if McClumsy hadn't fumbled the ball on that punt return.

    Along the same lines, explain to the class how not playing some national anthem would have altered that game. In other words --- justify its existence in that event.

    STILL your move.

    "Pride" by the way is one of the Seven Deadly Sins. So -------------- there's that.

    Keep all players in the locker room until after the NA is played.

    Problem. Solved.
